MCPS Employees: Get Ready for Spring Training!

March 8, 2017

Spring-TrainingWell Aware, the MCPS wellness program, is challenging you to step up to the plate and move during this spring’s new physical activity challenge, Spring Training. Registration is now under way.

Perhaps you have been hibernating through the long winter months and aren’t fully motivated to get moving yet. The transition from couch potato to being physically active can be intimidating and may not happen overnight. That’s OK; even professional baseball players need time to adjust from months of inactivity. Dust off your sneakers and get ready to hit a fitness home run!

Along the way, Well Aware will offer you incentives to keep you motivated. You could win individual prizes, grants to promote wellness at your school or office, as well as recognition for your efforts.

Learn more about Spring Training, including incentives and rules by visiting the Well Aware website. Then, log your activity in the online Well Aware Fitness Log. If you already have a fitness log account from an earlier challenge, you do not need to register for a new account. Trouble logging in? E-mail Well Aware.
